Carousel NY, one of my very favorite shops (with the sweetest, loveliest owner!), is having their winter sale. This is the last week to scoop up your faves with an extra 10% off - just use the code extra10 at checkout. I'm known for buying Lucas staple items at the end of each season. Is it weird I love re-discovering clothes I have previously purchased six months prior?! I might have a problem ;) Either way now is the time to get what you really wanted for next winter. I'm just a little obsessed with this jacket from Macarons.
While these photos are adorable I am SO looking forward to snapping shots in the sprinklers (anyone with me?). The best part of these pics are Lucas's leggings - besides that adorable mug, of course!. They are from Les Petits Darlings and we are kind of obsessed. We love arrows in this house. You can head over to Cupcake Mag to see more photos and learn more.

Be still my heart. Is there anything sexier than a daddy who carries his baby? I think not. Back to the point of this post ; ) We are loving, loving, loving our 7 A.M. Cygnet baby cover. Lucas has been carried since birth and it is such an essential part of our daily routine with him - even at two years old. The Cygnet cover is a life savor. Many times when we are carrying Lucas his pants ride up a bit exposing his little ankles and fussing with a blanket to cover his legs plus a bag plus bulky outerwear = annoying. The cover snaps right on to any carrier using velcro and keeps your baby nice and snug while being fuss free. It's super light weight (seriously, it weighs nothing!) and is water proof to boot. I highly recommend this to all my fellow baby wearing mamas!

In this house we are 7 A.M. ENFANT loyals. Our very first experience with 7 A.M. was with their 212 Evolution blanket. We never looked back. The quality and durability far surpasses any other children's outwear brands we had tried in the past. The cherry on top? The designs and colors are just beautiful. Living in NYC where we are out and about constantly with the trains and walking being our primary modes of transport, having Lucas bundled up in something warm and aesthetically beautiful is important to me. Our 212 Evolution blanket just got us through our second winter and it is still in impeccable condition. I love that it can be used for our second child and will look like new. Our Warm Muffs are my new favorite. They come in an array of amazing colors but I'm partial to the neon pink ;) It is such a hassle to remove my gloves anytime Lucas needs something while we are strolling and it's freezing outside. These make for a warm, comfy ride with easy access to my tot while we are on the move. LOVE! Now for the really amazing news. I'm hosting an incredible giveaway with my love Isobel (check out her blog to see how she is sporting her 7 A.M. gear) over on Instagram. It's a 5 day giveaway bonanza (!!) and it's going to be gooood. There will be a winner chosen each night who will receive 7 A.M. goodies so make sure you're following along. Also, stay tuned tomorrow when I will be posting a review on the Cygnet baby carrier cover featuring my handsome hubs.

"A portrait of my son, once a week, every week, in 2014."
Oh my Lucas. This is you checking out your reflection. I suppose you are just realizing what a stud you are ;) Sometimes I look at you with that same reaction. You're all mine my handsome boy.

"I found I could say things with colors and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for."
- Georgia O'Keefe
My wild boy. You are always on the go. Always on the move. Everything you do is filled with passion and gusto. In between these moments, there are minutes filled with calm and concentration. Moments where you slow down, observe, and really get into the groove so to speak. On this particular day I loved watching you get your hands dirty and create - even if it lasted a total of 10 minutes. I hope you always enjoy creating because you're pretty darn good if I do say so myself. I love you my little artist.
